Club/Travel Quick Overview

Club/travel is for girls and boys ages 11 to 18 years old. Age is determined by the date of July 1st each year. Whatever age you are on that date is the age group you would play for (some players can play up a an age group). 

-Players attend a set of tryouts (see below) to be evaluated for team placement. Offers to players are made via email and all players are notified if they made a team or not.

-Teams practice weekly (some once a week, other twice or three times). Most practices are held weekdays from either 6pm to 8pm or 8pm to 10pm (18u practice 4pm to 6pm) depending on team placement. Weekend practices vary.

-Team practices begin:

  • Boys:  Late August/early September and run til end of February/beginning of March

  • Girls:  Early November for girls in full the first week of November and end in March/April for Local Area teams, April/May for all other teams.

    • National Teams may have optional practices during September and October.​


-Tournaments are held beginning in January and run through end of each teams club season. Tournaments are broken out single day and multiday for each team. Charts may show 3-4 single and 2-3 multi days the reason for this as we want to ensure that each team attends tournaments that are competitive for their level. If there are not enough single days for a particular team they may attend more multi day rather than the single and vice versa.  The goal is to have each team playing in a competitive competition each month and also the opportunity to win a bid for the AAU and/or USAV Nationals.

-Single day tournaments are typically a full day and held on a Saturday or Sunday and majority are under an hour's drive.

-Tri-Matches are typically a half day and also held on Saturdays or Sundays.

-Multi-day tournaments are also held on the weekend and most are held on holiday weekends such as President's Day, Easter, Memorial day. They run either Friday, Saturday and Sunday or Saturday, Sunday & Monday and teams will play all 3 days. 

-Details on tournament schedules will be posted on team pages and conveyed to players/parents once the full tournament schedule is released from GEVA/AAU and 3rd party organizers.


-Team Bonding Day: Each season our players meet off the court with their coaches and our staff. This day consists of getting to know one another. Building a team bond off the court has proven to strengthen the bond on the court. The day includes, a fun activity, lunch/snacks and a team building exercise. Details on the day's event will be sent to players once team placement has been assigned. 

-Parent 101:  Each parent/guardian will take part in a Parent 101 Training Clinic. The clinic includes a simulation of sorts of a typical training session our club player perform at their practices. The clinic will also include a scrimmage whereby parents/guardians learn the basic rules of a volleyball match including rotation, time outs, subs, liberos, etc.  

- Injury Prevention, Mental Awareness and College Seminars. All players and parents are invited to attend any and all of our seminars free of charge. Details on these seminars are sent out to teams at the start of the season.

Refund policy

For all teams

Club/Travel Fees are non-refundable since the loss of an athlete cannot be easily replaced.  Once a contract is signed by the player/parent/guardian they are committing to the team and are responsible for full payment of the club dues stated in the contract. No monies will be refunded if a player chooses to leave XVA for any reason prior to the start of the season and/or during the season.  Contracts are in effective from the date signed (not the start of practice/season).

 

However, should a player become injured and not be available to continue the season, XVA will not pursue the remainder of any amounts due. Still, any request for waiving of fees due to injury must be made in writing to: Xtreme Volleyball Academy.

Refunds will not be given to players who miss a practice (club, beach and/or academy) due to vacation, illness, school, etc. 

Refunds will be given if XVA cancels the season due to unforeseen circumstances.
